FBI chief: Flirting with terrorism is a way to 'get yourself locked up'


Although the number of people trying to join ISIL's fight abroad has fallen in the last year, the FBI is still investigating more than 1,000 ISIL-related cases across all 50 states, the bureau's director said Tuesday during a visit to Minneapolis.

In a brief conversation with reporters at the FBI's office in Brooklyn Center, Director James Comey said the number of people trying to leave the U.S. and join ISIL in Syria dipped from 6-10 per month last year to 1-2 per month by late last summer. But he said the FBI hasn't seen the same drop-off in new terrorism investigations opened.
